Gunners starlet tips Sanchez to succeed at Emirates.Arsenal defender Ignasi Miquel has been quoted in Mundo Deportivo as saying that potential new signing Alexis Sanchez will be a good signing for the Gunners.
The Chilean forward is widely understood to be in London today to complete a medical with the north London club ahead of a £30m move from Barcelona, and his arrival will go down as one of the big news stories of this summer’s transfer window.
Having signed Mesut Ozil last year, the arrival of Sanchez represents another ambitious move from Arsene Wenger’s side in the transfer market, after criticism in recent years of not spending enough money to bring in more established names.
Arsenal fans will no doubt be excited by Sanchez’s arrival, and his team-mate Miquel is also glad to see him join the club, after praising his qualities and performances for Barcelona and Chile.
“Arsenal are a great team for Alexis,” said the 21-year-old.
“Alexis will fit perfectly with Arsenal, it’ll be a joy to have him at the club as he’s a great player.
“Playing for Chile he has much more freedom than at Barcelona. That being said I think he adapted really well to Barca’s style and had games in which he really shone.”
